Regular price £4,000.00 Sale

The checkered pattern on the Quilted Balloon sculpture is achieved by first layering blue and white glass rods together and wrapping them with clear glass to create a unit. Units are cut and placed together to form a larger block, which can then be blown and shaped into the desired form.The  bottom part is made separately out of gold and lace rods, together with air bubbles. The two parts are then attached.
